are wondering when this comes. this is barack obama's katrina moment. for gorge bush hurricane katrina was a significant turning point in undermining his aura as you say with the public because there was a mismatch between what his administration was saying and what people could see on their television sets. so for barack obama he has got to get this right, because otherwise people will see this as political disaster and another point, you know, he has got to make sure that this isn't politicized. >> jennifer: how do you do that when you are one week before an election? >> sure. i think he has done a good job of reaching out to both republican and democratic governors and mayors. george bush -- his administration provided some help to republican governors that democratic governors didn't get. new orleans wasn't included in the federal state of emergency. >> jennifer: and james do you think, first of all that the decision to halt the campaigns, for example, that is a no-brainer, right? >> yeah absolutely. and i think particularly in the case of obama talking to f
billion. making it the fourth costliest disaster behind katrina, 9/11 and andrew. >>> homeowners may be spared a costly deductible. >>> and business is about to boom for companies that made oprah's annual favorite things list. we always love this one. a few of your favs, an $1800 battery and peddle powered bike, microsoft's new $500 surface tablet and a $40 blue velvet cake. blue velvet. just ahead, bill karins is going to have your weekend weather forecast, plus how one family in eastern pennsylvania is making the best of being without power. you're watching "early today." >>> well, welcome back. we'll get into your weekend forecast starting with today. no big storms across the country. nice and calm and mild in the southern half of the country. little chilly up along minneapolis, chicago and all across the northeast. little bit of moisture begins to increase in texas with some showers maybe even into tennessee and arkansas. nothing too bad. as we go through sunday, everything still pretty much the same. it's really, lynn, not until we get into tuesday and wednesday. not a huge one,
it was katrina or other events we've actually been able to bring in national guard platforms to provide 911 systems for cities that have lost those systems. we recently in the joplin tornados and also tuscaloosa tornados we brought in dod equipment to replace what was destroyed. from the fire side i know there's a lot of things you are doing to work around the interoperatability issues with regard to communications between fire and dod and maybe if ray or anybody else wants to speak to that. >> our communications challenges still exist. we have excellent telecom communications, we have a layered effect of our radio systems. we have mobile command posts that we can exercise. so we're prepared for power outages, reduction of telecoms, we have a layered effect for our communications. but as everybody here said, we need help. if somebody here can help me get a navy or marine corps aircraft to talk to my guys on the ground tactically, i need that and i don't have that today. i use a command control helicopter, a civilian helicopter, to handle that and transfer that to an air to air victor
future disasters? that's why i said no on that second round of appropriations that katrina because they spent it on massage parlors and everything you can think of in addition to what was necessary. >> jennifer: that's iowa tea party congressman and crazytown resident steve king. he's one of 11 congressional members who days after hurricane katrina voted against $51.8 billion in relief spending in louisiana and mississippi. and now, just days after hurricane sandy, he obviously has not changed his tune. and it is that kind of radical radical/insane thinking that's gotten him into his tightest re-election race yet. the latest ppp poll has him running three points ahead of his democratic opponent, christie vilsack. 48% to 45% in iowa. congressman king is not alone. several of his fellow representatives from tea party crazytown are in the political fights of their lives as well. begin with minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann. she's off the charts in name recognition. she raised $18 million more than her democratic
have a capacity to hurt for example, katrina, than to help, or blame any candidates themselves. there are a number of people who have been blaming this on the global warming. this probably hurts obama a little bit in that it adds to the general feeling that things are amiss in america. the one swing state most affected by this storm, pennsylvania, and if there's one place you could see the effect of hurting the voter turnout, it would be virginia. >> stephanie: why. >> i have been waiting for him to go through puberty for 15 years. it is telling how off his analysis is just looking at the polls that have come out about the president's handling of this. 90% of the american people say he is doing a good job. in terms of climate change he named a few politicians -- >> stephanie: and obama didn't say i'm going to lower the level of the oceans as you recall. it is unbelievable. >> no al gore said the president should have said that and that's what the goal should be. any politician who uses that as a punch line should be punched in the nose. >> stephanie: exactl
